D.J. Wilson Could Solve Brooklyn’s Big Man Issues

Wilson did not flourish during his first two years as a Michigan Wolverine either. Wilson played 24 minutes in five games as a true freshman before an injury led to him redshirting the rest of the year. D.J.’s situation did not change much during his redshirt freshman campaign either, as he averaged just 6.1 minutes per game.

Everything seemed to click for Wilson in his third year at Michigan. Once he finally managed to snag a starting role, he took full advantage of the additional minutes. Wilson only averaged 11.0 points per game, but he did so with an absurdly efficient True Shooting Percentage of 62.8 percent. Wilson also showed some long-range ability, canning 37.3 percent of his triples. He also showed up when the pressure mounted; some of his best games of the season came during the NCAA tournament.
